Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has backed London rivals, Arsenal to win the English Premier League title this season.
Drogba, speaking to promote his autobiography – Commitment, feels Manchester City will be strong contenders but has offered his support to Arsene Wenger’s side because of his former Blues team-mate, Petr Cech.
“I think Manchester City will be as strong as they have been in the last few years, unfortunately Chelsea are too far (behind in the title race), so I will go for my friend Petr Cech at Arsenal.”
When asked if he thinks the Gunners have enough strength in depth to win the league, Drogba simply said, “They have got Petr Cech!”
On Chelsea’s current form which sees them languishing in the bottom half, he said, “It’s a different situation for club, manager and players.”
“When you have won the league the season before and you find yourselves in the last three or four teams in the table after four or five games, it is a shock. I know the players and the manager have the ability to change this. They have won two consecutive games in the last two days, so I think it is kind of a new start.”
Drogba scored 164 goals in 282 appearances during his two spells at Stamford Bridge.
